Grab The Games: Liberated
Another day another review for our fans. This time we got our hands on a brand new indie title called Liberated. But what is this game about? Is it worth picking it up or maybe some months later with a good discount? Stick around, and you will find out. Let's start by mentioning a few things about it.
Liberated is an action-adventure game that unfolds across the pages of a comic book. Seamlessly merging the art of hand-drawn graphic novels with interactivity and side-scrolling action, it's a revolutionary combination of video games and comics. In this near-future dystopia, the eerily familiar always-online society gives way to complete government control—all in the name of safety. But in the midst of it all, an insurgent group known as "Liberated" rises. To begin with, I should probably start by saying that the graphics of the title and, in general, the artwork is satisfying. The world design is excellent, with great attention to details, almost like hand-drawn, and the story is remarkable and captivating. The game truly is like a comic coming to life.
Furthermore, the game is enjoyable to play, from various quick actions and decisions you can take during your adventures to the amazing cut scenes that keep you on the edge of your seat and make me want to play even more. Another positive aspect of the title is that the price is affordable for what it offers and that there are many free DLCs that you add and play right now. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, despite being described as a stealth game.
Stealth has a minor impact on the title since you can simply go guns crazy and kill everyone on site. Furthermore, I should not forget to mention that shooting in the title is merely ok. There is no gun variety, and sometimes the scenery blocks your view, and you get ambushed or killed by enemies. Moreover, there are no saves, only checkpoints, and in various segments of Liberated, you just walk around until you find an enemy. The puzzles of the game are quite easy as well.
To sum up, the game is merely ok. If you can forget about the negative aspects, it is quite good with a fantastic atmosphere and artwork. However, most players will not be able to surpass all the issues that I mentioned before. The game deserves more, and hopefully, some of the problems will be fixed soon.
